Attractions

The streets in the village are narrow and irregular, and have big slopes. They are paved with blue stones, very beautiful to watch. It conserves the typical atmosphere, which is unfortunately very uncommon.

The Parish Church of Sant Miquel is very interesting. It is Neo-classical but has some Baroque elements. It was built between 1766 and 1767. Its most notable piece is the organ, of the Romantic French style. It has some Catalan elements, and it was built by the French man Joan Pere Cavailler. In the last years it has been restored.

As it happens in the other villages of the Priorat, there are some big "cases pairals" built in the 19th.century. The most important one is "Cal Compte". Its dimensions are very big, and it conserves a private oratory.
